SINGAPORE – Be prepared to get terrified when you enter Universal Studios Singapore this October. For the Halloween season, Asia's leading amusement park is turning dark and gore with the launch of the 7th "Halloween Horror Nights."
This year's edition promises guests heart-pounding moments with five terrifying haunted houses, two scare zones and two killer shows inspired by seven modern-day sins: cruelty, deception, malice, manipulation, narcissism, perversion and obsession. In addition, many of the park’s exciting rides and attractions open till late.
So if you're ready to scream and get terrified, here are five things to expect when you do the "Halloween Horror Nights 7":
1. Artsy visuals
Upon entering the horror houses and scare zones, it'd be impossible to miss the meticulously tailored props and costumes, which took almost a year to plan and produce.
The creative team behind the production made sure every detail is placed in the right place. The prosthetics and makeup alone took 3,360 hours to finish.
2. Spine-chilling sound effects
A Universal Studios production is expected not only to be visually appealing, but also pleasing to the ear.
Each horror house features a unique theme and ambiance intensified by the spine-chilling sound effects, not to mention the screams, groans, and moans of the actors.
3. Realistic acting
Apart from the visuals and sound effects, the "Halloween Horror Nights 7" is also made more terrifying by the realistic performance of all their 500 actors.
Everyone, even your guide, is in character during the show. They're not wearing pricey costumes and prosthetics for nothing.
4. Great use of technology
Aside from actors, there are also 22 animatronics inside the horror houses. They are strategically installed in nooks and crannies where you least expect them.
They also made use of light and optical illusions that makes the whole experience dreamy, and a whole lot creepier.
5. Perfect bonding experience
This year, Universal Studios Singapore unveils the all-new Zombie Laser Tag Experience, where you and three other friends will have to work together to fend off and shoot deranged zombies using a laser tag.
This live-action zombie experience incorporates brainwave technology where your team leader wears headbands that sense concentration levels to unlock doors inside the zombie-infested camp.
Halloween Horror Nights 7 will end its run on October 29, 2017. Last call: get your tickets now at www.halloweenhorrornights.com.sg.
